Why I Travel an Hour for My Hair

I am not a particularly picky person. I usually just go with the flow, but there are a few things that I will not settle for anything less than what I want. One of those things is going to a hair spa in singapore. Even though it is almost an hour from me, there is no other hair salon that I will use. I used to live in Singapore, which is how I came to use their services. They are so different from other salons, as they only take the best of the best to work there.

When it comes to my hair, that is exactly what I want. Read more…


The Concept Behind Blended Value

Silence Is A Communication Tool | Tips for Business OwnersFor decades people have had a particular concept when it comes to business. This concept is that a business has to be either one that is designed to make money, or one that is designed to help the public and tackle different social issues. For example when it comes to practicing law there are basically two different types of law firms. One law firm focuses on billing clients and making money.

Sometimes, these business owners will put the sole focus on making a buck and forget about the communities they serve. While this approach works for some, the period of time in which it works is typically limited and profits are typically capped at a certain point. A much more constructive way to make a dollar is to give something back to the community and realize the value of serving the people in the area that you live. This approach continues to work for many companies, and it provides communities with so much more than just someone to do business with. A business might choose to give back to a community by donating a portion of their proceeds to schools and neighborhoods, asking their employees to participate in community service or financially supporting a project that is necessary within that community.
